I'd wanted a bird primarily to visit my biology students when we study birds. After a lot of research, I decided on a 'tiel. I'd picked out a lutino male and had visited him several times in the pet store. On the way back from Houston, a friend and I stopped at the Humble PetSmart, where I saw "my" bird and bought him and the necessaries. On the way home, I realized that I'd been in la-la land and confused the stores. This lutino male wasn't "my" bird at all! How embarrassing...
But he quickly flew into my heart, and "my" bird had been sold anyway, so I guess it was fate that brought us together!

Hi! My name is In Memory of Sebastian

I am a Cockatiel from Nacogdoches, TX.

Sir Poopsalot, Kiddo

9 years old   M


Fresh tips of greenbrier, Sun Chips ("original" minus the salt), cornbread, pizza crust--pretty much anything crusty!

On her shoulder, at the top of my ladder, in the shower, or dancing on the computer keyboard.

Getting sent back to my cage before I'm ready.

Having goodies vanish just because I'm not supposed to be eating them.

She really loves and understand animals, and has worked with them all her life, so she seems to understand what I "tell" her (sometimes!). She has lots of other animals who like me and keep me amused when she's gone. And she believes in early childhood enrichment, so I get to go to neat places and do neat things with her!

Love to perch on top of her head, climbing down using her glasses and my sharp little claws. Sometimes I preen her eyelashes with an incredibly gentle touch--also pick the dried skin off her lips. Love to sit beak to "beak" at my mirror and tell my alter ego--over and over and over again!--"Good morning, Sebastian!" Enjoy biting apart her handmade bookmarks and watching the beads roll around..

EVERYTHING is a toy!.

  So sorry for your loss.
So sorry for the loss of Sebastian. I am a avid animal lover and caretaker and know what it is like to lose a precious animal soul. I am sure Sebastian is at the Rainbow Bridge with all the others including my Keeko that I lost not long ago. I actually found her outside as Grackles were chasing her around my yard. I finally managed to get her to come into my hand and caught her. Mind you this was after 2 days of trying. I had her for 7 years. She should have been around longer but they suspect she got west nile disease:(. When I think of her I laugh, cry and feel guilty at times but I know she is in a better place and will be there when I arrive. Here is a vote for your Sebastian and I am so sorry the way it happend. Beth and the zoo. :)

Come visit me, Keeko/In Loving Memory, Noah & Lucky.

  Message from the Other Side
Well, Sebastian here. I miss all my friends on the BirdChannel. But now Grandma and Grandpa and little MaryAnn and all my other human kin can visit me in the Celestial Aviary. Here's how I got here.
Mom knew I was beginning to grow some new wing feathers, but I only had one on each side and still couldn't fly very well, so she had taken me out for a walk with the dogs as usual, figuring in a day or two she'd have to introduce me to the harness. I got knocked off her shoulder in the woods and with an adrenaline spurt managed to fly up a little onto a vine. To make a short story of a long ordeal, I kept flying up a little further into nearby trees, and Mom finally gave up her vigil at dark. As she was going in, she heard something suspicious. I wasn't there at dawn, and she spent two days in the woods crying and calling and whistling. I wish I could have told her that our resident owl decided to recycle me and release me to my present wonderful home. (We lutinos aren't well camouflaged!) She grieved (and still does) more than I knew a human could. I finally nudged her into getting a new baby (NOT a replacement Sebastian, because I'm absolutely irreplaceable!!). Now she has four, but I'll let them tell their own stories. They'll be working on sites soon: Darwin, Moby, and unweaned Little Guy and Big Guy who'll probably get real names later. I'm happy but I really miss singing to Mom and all the other neat things we used to do together.

Come visit me, Moby, Darwin & In Memory of Sebastian.

  Awww, Sebastian you're so sweet! I go on an internet hiatus only to come back and find your comment! Thank you!

I really like your featherdo! I wish I could get my feathers to stand up like that, but Mommy refuses to buy me featherspray!

Your Mommy lets you in her hair? You are very lucky then! Once I was scared at the beach and she let me climb up into the hood she was wearing. I made a nest of her hair and got completely tangled up. I was happy! She was not. She had to have help getting me out. She lets me preen her hair occasionally, but no more climbing in it.

  What I've been up to lately...
Sebastian here! I've fallen in love with a lory named Cheerio Cheerioptera. Check her out!...I've gotten much better at eating my veggies (esp. sweet potato, carrots, and peppers) though I'm not as keen on fruit. Since I'm molting, I eat boiled eggwhites for extra protein. I'm getting pretty pushy about eating what Mom's eating, while she's eating it. Sometimes she thinks it's cute, sometimes annoying...I've been training Mom to groom my head and help me free those little pinfeathers. She knows when I bow my head, I'm soliciting grooming, not praying (or maybe both??)...I'm flying pretty well now. Mom's got a little halter for me when we take the dogs and cats for walks, but so far I just sit on her shoulder or head when we're outside...Mom is falling more and more in love with me every day, discovering parrots have way more personality and intelligence than she'd ever imagined. I give her sweet affection, do funny things for her when she's blue, and do annoying things when she needs to get her attention on someone besides herself. She's realizing that paying my ransom to the pet store and buying me home, food, and toys, was one of the best investments she's ever made.

  Hi. The bat connection was completely subconsciously serendipitous, but very appropriate. I like to dangle upside down from my cage a lot. My Mommy named me because she said I'd need a scientific name after I won my Nobel Prize in Ornithology. She thinks I'm brilliant cause I talk lots... Shhhhh.... don't tell her otherwise!

I do find bats interesting cause their sleep schedules are as messed up as my Mommy's.

Thank you visiting my blog,

  Hey Sebastian
I don't get to help either, just supervise. Maybe one day when I can wear my harness she'll let me help. But just being able to go outside and get some sun was good enough for me!! I hate all this dreary weather, but mom says the Farmer's Almanac doesn't have good weather for us this year! So ...... Have a GREAT DAY :> p.s. Guess your mom is getting ready to go back to school huh?

Come visit me, Dobby, OTIS 6-25-06 & Nina.

Welcome to Bird Channel!!! You're gonna love it here. There are so many new friends you never knew exsisted, like me and my littlest brother Worthington! I'm AsaMina Sura and I run my home. It sounds like you flew into a very good family and I do hope you enjoy all your travels! Worthington came to us by plane and he tells me all sorts of stories about the trip--most of which I think he's making up! My Momma Bird was a Lutino tiel. Oh, have your Mom go find these treats: Barbara's Bakery brand, Breakfast O's, they are unfortified safe cheerios and even Edgar, who'd never seen anything but seed before he come home to us loves them. We all can eat our weight in them! My Grandma also gets us the fruit and veggie nutri-berries, which are fun to eat and throw. Welcome to Bird Channel! Your new friend, AsaMina Sura
